Magit Cacoon is truly one of the most exciting exports Tel Aviv has to offer in current times. A gifted artist at the vanguard of the underground dance scene for over a decade, Magit Cacoon has seen exponential growth in her success and reputation as a globally renowned DJ and producer. As comfortable behind the decks as she is in the studio, Magit’s career trajectory has skyrocketed after successful periods in Tel Aviv and Berlin. Furthermore, over 150 production credits have their way onto the likes of Ipso, Renaissance Records, Radikon, Second State and Crosstown Rebels plus a host of releases on her own Mago Music.
Drawing high-profile attention through her music, a growing number of A-list producers have also featured, playing a role in a raft of successful releases and supported by a leading cast of DJ royalty that includes Solomun. It is also with English lead-singer and superstar engineer/producer, Steven Wilson – globally renowned for his award-winning solo work and as lead singer and guitarist for Porcupine Tree – that has seen Magit remix “King Ghost” on Wilson’s Grammy nominated 2021 album, “The Future Bites”, alongside Nile Rodgers, Tangerine Dream and Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro.
2020 saw the launch of a new venture and the Mago Music label that has provided an opportunity for an eclectic mix of artists to join forces with Magit in a melting pot of musical ideas. The result has been an array of successful releases. A remix for the world-famous Renaissance Records saw a reworking of Argy’s “Power of Detachment” in late-2021, while 2022 saw no let-up in Magit’s relentless rise to the upper echelons of the underground dance scene. A collaboration with Speicher regular Kölsch, saw “Prison Grass” feature on the German techno legend’s IPSO label.
A parallel career behind the decks has been met with equal success, not least through a nomination for “DJ Award for Best Breakthrough” artist in 2018 as the Israeli superstar continues to captivate world audiences with a cross-genre sound. As part of Solomun’s Diynamic crew, global DJ performances at premier nightclub events and festivals including the ‘Get Lost’, ‘Melt’ and ‘Fusion’ festivals’, ‘Day Zero’ and the world-famous ‘Tomorrowland’, have all been regular bookings for the Israeli star’s tour schedule. Furthermore, performances around the world for DC10 and the iconic Fabric, London have shone a spotlight on Magit’s charisma and vitality from within the DJ booth. A highly successful period in Berlin saw a 3-year stint hosting “Sweat Lodge Radio” with further standout performances across the city via mesmerising sets at Watergate Club, Panorama Bar, Kater Blau and the legendary Bar 25.
A huge social media following and similarly sized talent continues to see Magit Cacoon at the top of promoters booking lists. Her ability to cast a spell over audiences with an array of bewitching sets on a musical journey of power and poise, confirms Magit’s inimitable talent. Post-pandemic, she has hit the ground running with a surfeit of gigs across the globe. Continued performances have seen successive sets in 2021 and 2022 for “Get Lost” in Miami and OFFSónar’s Barcelona events, while visits to Central and Southern America in late 2021 saw scintillating shows in Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Costa Rica, for Riot in Córdoba, Espacio Broadway in Santiago, and Reniassance in Tulum. Further regular spots at Fabric across 2021 and 2022 have cemented a growing reputation as June 2022 also saw an appearance for Renaissance Ibiza at the party island’s renowned Amnesia and the Extrema Outdoors Festival, Belgium.
Success, passion and talent are recurring themes that are consistently part of Magit Cacoon’s rising career trajectory. With Mago Music continuing to deliver an array of club floor-fillers including her own indie dance cut, “Adoration” in December 2022, plus releases on KATERMUKKE, DGTL and Watergate Records, a packed schedule of gigs and festivals are set to follow in 2023. Showing no sign of a downturn in energy, drive and success, Magit continues to find her varied skillset very much in-demand.
